The suspect also robbed two customers within the business on his way out the door. He took a wallet with cash from one victim and an iPhone 5 from another before fleeing the scene.

Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic or white male in his late 20s to early 30s. He was wearing a black hat with a white "Fallen" brand symbol on it.
